"In 1953 at the new government settlement of Hooker Creek on the edge of the Tanami Desert, Mervyn Meggitt presented Walpiri men with crayon and paper and invited them to draw. Meggitt was interested in ritual, yet two men astounded him with drawings made 'for the pleasure of drawing'. Six decades later these drawings have been introduced to descendants of their makers, triggering memories of a time of profound dislocation and galvanizing attention to contemporary predicaments as well as fears and hopes for the future."
